Any idea which tablet or column? Or when in the story, approximately? You got me hauling out my copy of it.
Unfortunately, I do not. It was just a quote they threw up on the screen. I'll go back to my tape and see if they give a reference and post it tonight if they do.
So I checked my tape and the exact quote was, "I will raise up the dead and they will eat the living-- and the dead will outnumber the living." No citation more specific than The Epic of Gilgamesh
was given. A quick Google search finds the quote (with slightly different wording) under "Part 3: Ishtar and Gilgamesh, and the Death of Enkidu."
